Westjet inspecting all fan blades after Southwest Airlines engine failure

Westjet inspecting all fan blades after Southwest Airlines engine failure

A bird strike forced a Southwest Airlines jet to make an emergency landing in Nashville, Tennessee Wednesday.

"Flights are delayed and there is no full disclosure most of the time", airline passenger Priyanka Chakrabarti said. Boeing said it is providing technical help to the investigation, with which Southwest Airlines is cooperating. Debris ripped a foot-long hole above the left wing.

"This was an internal metal fatigue area", Sumwalt continued.

US airline regulators said Wednesday that they will order inspections on engine fan blades like the one involved in a fatal failure that killed a woman in a plane that made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

This, however, is not the first time Southwest has had issues regarding this specific type of engine.

The engine is manufactured as part of a joint venture by General Electric and French company Safran SA.

When the two couldn't save Riordan, Mackey said, they just waited with her.

The engine's cowling was found about 70 miles from where the plane landed, Sumwalt said.

But former flight attendant and US TV show host, Bobby Laurie, reposted the photo to Twitter with a reminder to cover your nose and mouth with the oxygen mask during an emergency. An ultrasonic inspection of engine was scheduled to take place this December. "Although the number of fan blades requiring the inspection remains the same, the number of engines involved with this inspection has significantly increased", it said.

As for Tuesday's incident, "The NTSB and the FAA are going to be looking very closely at the sequence of events that led up to this accident", Gogila said. It will require inspections of some CFM56-7B engines. SWA estimates there are 732 engines in the SWA population.

Wood laughed before clarifying, "I knew". "[In] Westworld , I get it a little more. "Because I'm like, well, you know, you're Anthony Hopkins ".

That proposed directive has not been finalized in the eight months since it was proposed, according to a report in the Seattle Times.

The Southwest jet engine showed evidence of "metal fatigue", National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt told CNN's "New Day" on Wednesday.

Its failure this week is being attributed to metal fatigue of one of the engine's fan blades.

The day after this shocking episode, other domestic airlines that use planes fitted with the CFM56-7B engine said they had begun inspecting some of their aircraft. The airline asked for 20 months to complete all checks.

The cause of the explosion is not yet clear but investigators have been able to determine so far that one of the fan blades on the CFM56 engine was missing. The NTSB said the probable cause of the wreck was "inadequate consideration" of "human factors" and "limitations in the inspection and quality control procedures used by United Airlines". The company says over 8,000 CFM56-7B engines are now in use on Boeing's 737 airplanes.

The pilots then might have concentrated on dealing with the depressurization that resulted from shrapnel from the engine, confirming that oxygen masks deployed, Sullenberger said.

"There did not seem to be an urgency" at the FAA to finalise the inspections, he said.

The FAA wasn't immediately available for comment.

Safety checks in Europe have also been contentious. Following the 2016 incident, the manufacturer recommended an ultrasonic inspection of fan blades on the powerplant. Investigators warn that it is too early to say whether the two problems are linked.
